Calling FeedBlitz Podcasters!

Thursday, January 26, 2006

From tonight on, your podcasts (whatever content you have in an <enclosure> tag (business users: have you considered putting PDF collateral in an enclosure?)) will be linked to a new "enclosure" image at the end of each post. The image will link back to your content, with the popup showing the type of the file and its size. Here's the image you'll see:

And of course it's in FeedBlitz orange. You wouldn't expect anything less, would you? With this change, if you happen to be going to special lengths to enable downloads from FeedBlitz emails, there's no need. You can check it out on your feed's preview and test functions. Text based emails will have a new line starting "Enclosure: " with the link to your content.

Can you explain "business users: have you considered putting PDF collateral in an enclosure?)"

Sure! Podcasters use an RSS feature called "enclosures" to send the audio / video files to their subscribers. But an enclosure can, in fact, be *anything* - like a PDF brochure, for example.

So using an enclosure, you could automatically send a special offer, presentation, whatever you like, along with the post in your feed announcing it. Your materials get pushed to the reader as it accesses the feed (depending on their settings). In FeedBlitz's case, an enclosure graphic appearsw with a link to the piece.
